dango, check your pm's. you missed a follow up!
This being only my opinion , nothing more or less , I have done linear miles of (pre-glued) wood edge banding , iron on , etc. and have used similar tools and HATE THEM.! If you keep them absolutely sharp and clean , they do work most of the time , but still not fun . You would serve yourself better with a new clean medium file , file card and 120 and 220 grit sand paper and block .
Ash as beautiful as it is does not like these types of tools and are very prone to chip , some times oak can be finicky .!
Only my opinion and had not given thought to "not power.!
Ok , now that follow up.!
